A beginners’ guide to HP certifications: Why an HP ExpertOne Master ASE Matters

4 questions with Dean Colpitts, HP channel partner, MITG, Canada


Q1: Tell me about your organization.

MeHP_Discover2014_Dean Colpitts_HP ExpertOne_Cropped.jpgmbers IT Group (MITG) is a privately-owned, customer-oriented technology solution provider. We have deep experience with small, medium and enterprise companies across Canada- so we have a strong local presence within an expanding national scope. We specialize in enterprise-level solutions practically adapted for small and medium-sized businesses (SMB). Our hardware, software and managed solutions are tailored to the needs of our customers. We help businesses run more efficiently while making the best use critical IT budget dollars.


Q2: Why does having a Master ASE certification matter to you and your customers?

It helps me have a different kind of conversation with my customer: one that is more about starting with their challenges and goals, and then designing and implementing a full solution to meet their needs. It instills more trust and confidence in my customers to listen to that advice from the very beginning of the conversation.


Q3: What is the single biggest thing that changed for you after you became a master ASE?

A more consultative approach to working with my customers. 


Q4: Tell me about a specific customer experience where your advanced certification played a key role in business impact of your customer.

For one particular insurance company, we created a service that very quickly and easily connected the company’s brokers with critical information they needed to speed up insurance claims and policy renewals for end users. First, we implemented an HP converged infrastructure. Then we acted as a one-stop, full-service help desk IT department for the customer. In the end, our customer’s insurance brokers were selling more policies than ever because we had increased their customer service to such a high degree. Ultimately, end-users had their insurance claims settled must faster than before we implemented this infrastructure and service.
